Recently,I read a book named Keep the aspidistra flying written by George Orwell.The book influences me a lotbecause the story has something that touches my heart.Thestory talks about a man who wants to be a poet and who abandons many well-paying jobs topursue his dreamofbeing a poet.I have a similar experience of quitting a very good job in orderto bea writer. Also,the man in the story is lack ofmoney because he works as a book store assistant and thus has a very low salary.He lives in a shabby apartmentand sometimes have no money to buy food.Again,Ive got similar experience.I once lived in a cramped apartmentalone andhad no money.The book is importantto me because it touches me and gives me encouragement to persist.

Therefore, society actually benefits from TV.
